Just Gabe and I again tonight, again via Ustream.tv. Yea, I know, you didn’t hear about it. We kinda snuck it in to do some testing, since the last time we did it was such a disaster.
We spend tonight talking mostly about the Clubman, including answering questions from the viewers. To finish, we spent a few minutes on the iPhone.
By the time you read this, Todd is all the way moved and still living out of boxes! That’s why he wasn’t around this week. We gave him the night off so he could finish moving, because we are cool like that.
This week we will be doing our 2nd anniversary show. There is a very good chance we will do it live again, on video. Keep an eye out here and at Motoringfile for details. I can’t say for sure, but if we do a live show, it will be on Thursday starting at around 9PM CST (do the math, forward and back, for your time zone). Sorry to those of you outside of the US that can’t make it. This is the only time we have to actually record the show.
And HUGE thanks to the click monkeys! Everytime I checked iTunes last week, we were at #11! Thanks!
News of the week from Motoringfile as usual, but with a twist. Todd wasn’t around, so Gabe and I, last minute, decided to do the show live via Ustream.tv.
Besides news, db tells a bad joke and talks about EBC brake pads, and Gabe talks about removing the armrest out of his car. Check back tomorrow our discussion about the Clubman, including answering viewer questions live!
Whiteroofradio turns 2 on Wednesday, August 1st, and we will be celebrating it on Woof 173/174. Pretty good chance we are going to do those live again as well, so keep an eye on this space and over at Motoringfile.com for the details!
We roll into Gabe’s R56 talk with his new theme. What do you think? He brought his MINI home and parked it in the garage. The End. After I reminded him that he only bought a MINI and didn’t win an award, he gives us his initial thoughts.
As you would imagine, so far, he is loving his R56! You can read his first week review at Motoringfile.com here.
And I get to talk a little bit about alternative fuels. I think it was about 45 seconds, but didn’t really check the time. Don’t worry, I’ll keep on hammering the guys until they have no choice but to let me talk about it!
Todd’s out this week moving, so Gabe and I are going to take advantage of that and do another video show. Maybe. For those of you that caught the last, you know what a nightmare it was. I’ve been playing with ustream lately and they have made some great improvements in the software, so it should be a much simpler process. Watch this space for more information. If we do video, it will be Thursday at 6:30PM PST/8:30PM CST/ 9:30 EST.
We’ve had a few new reviews on iTunes, thank you! If you are one that hasn’t done that, and feel so inclined, just click over to the WRR page at iTunes (link below). Feel free to click on that subscribe button a few times too. Just want to get WRR above the Autoblog podcast again, and see if the extra subscribes still works.
And, here is the side-by-side comparison. R53 vs R56.
Todd throws some shout-outs to the KC club, we talk a little bit about the Clubman’s engine and Gabe gets his R56. Which he talks about even more on Woof #170. And, db went to the Fireballed! SeminarBQ and got a scoop from Fireball Tim about the shops involvement with Street Tuner Challenge on SpeedTV. More on that will be coming later in the week.
And, of course, news of the week from Motoringfile.com. There wasn’t that much news, but each item we discussed in greater than normal detail since there were quite a few hot button topics.
Again, we go a bit long, but we really had a lot to talk about. Oh yea, we are looking for click monkeys! If you happen to have iTunes open, go the WRR page (link below) and click the subscribe button as many times as you like. We are seeing if this still works on the iTunes Podcast charts, and I really like to see WRR above the Autoblog podcast.
WRR Interview: Fireball Tim
Fireball Tim took time with us again this week to clue us in on what’s going on with Fireballed! Mainly, the upcoming season of Speed TV’s Street Tuner Challenge. It sounds like it’s going to be cool!
If you want to be a part of the build, you can sign up over at stcMINI.com. I know I will be! Gotta get a couple of Whiteroofradio decals on the car ya know?
To keep up with the build process, besure you are watching Fireball Tim’s blog where he will be posting details and photos as the build goes along. Of course, you can expect more audio from us at Whiteroofradio during the build process.

Who knew that Gabe could snap like Bozo the Clown? Once that was discovered, Gabe chatted a bit about the upcoming 1 Series (who knew it would be so heavy?) Then we spent some time talking about Porches (who knew the 914 was so small?) which then turned us a little bit toward Volkswagon (who knew the Thing was so cool?).
Then, a bit of listener feedback. Voicemails from MINI United (who knew db could not really remember the girls in the windows?) and 1 from Ian about automatic transmissions (who knew we could still be talking about this?).
We finish talking about the Clubman and would be very interested in your opinion! Leave a comment below Clubman MC vs. Clubman MCS (we already know that we won’t get the diesel Clubman in the States).
Big show tonight, BIG SHOW! Back from a week off after MINI United. We were all seriously in the weeds. But, we’re back starting off talking about Transformers. Don’t worry, no spoilers, really.
Gabe gives us an update on his R56. We are keeping fingers crossed that he gets it this week.
We are done with MINI United Audio. We aren’t hiding anything from you. We certainly hope you enjoyed the coverage!
Plus, we do news of the week. You can tell we haven’t done this in a while by the length of the show. It kinda got away from us. Don’t worry, we don’t take nearly as much of your time tomorrow night!
Oh yea, new theme music. Let us know what you think. You know, you can do it below in the comments, email us or via voicemail at (206) 33-WHITE.
